Bibs... Why?

Can anyone please explain why people prefer bib pants over regular snowboarding pants? I would think that snowboarding bibs are more cumbersome versus regular pants.

The number 1 reason I think is so you don't get snow down your butt.
You don't need a belt so there is no need for adjustments or pulling you pant up every so often.
And they offer a little more warmth for your lower/mid core.

I don't believe in signatures

Comfort. No belt and they stay put.

+ 1^ & I find that when you wear Bibs, you can delete an upper body layer as they are so good at keeping your core warm.

The good ones fit like a dream and there is nothing cumbersome about them at all.

Ditto alla the above!

Monkey Butt,... Or "Swamp Ass" as some call it,... Those cold, red, frozen cheeks you get after a day of getting snow deposited "down the valley" as Wrath so eloquently put it....

That's a SERIOUS health issue.

Especially for us... Shall I say,.. Rather Rotund tray riders. Those of us with a chronic "crack" problem! . (...plumbers variety, not the other!)


I solved my own crack problem by adding suspender buttons to all my sb pants.
(....but that's only because I look utterly ridiculous in a Pink Onesie!!)

I like to really tighten the shoulder straps and pull them up high so that people can see the perfect outline of my junk. That's almost impossible to do with pants.
